This is a great packet to use with high school students to teach about the Progressive Era. It requires NO PREP! It can also be used as a review prior to the Regents exam! The information included is based off of past NYS US History Regents exams.
I used this packet with my beginner ELLs. It helped them build background knowledge about US History and the Progressive Era. Important vocabulary is highlighted throughout. All of the reading is linguistically simplified so ELLs are able to complete the comprehension questions independently. There are text-based comprehension questions included on every page! All questions are multiple choice or include a sentence starter. Topics include:
Pure Food and Drug Act
Meat Inspection Act
The packet also includes a test! If using the packet to teach about the Progressive Era the test at the end is aligned to all of the information. It is a great way to assess understanding.
